Museum 'Château de Falaise'

From 2012 to 2013, in cooperation with "Medievalworlds" I was involved in the virtual reconstruction of Château de Falaise in Normandy, France. The birthplace of William the Conqueror, first Norman king of England, has been renovated from 2012 to 2013 and turned into a museum open for public visitors.

 

The operators relied on the use of modern 3D technology to offer the visitors a special experience:

every visitor gets a tablet pc at the entry. When you're standing on a specific position and aim the tablet's camera at particular spots the room will be replaced by a 3D visualization. You can point the camera in any desired direction and you'll get the impression of what this room would have looked like 800 years ago.

 

In the courtyard there are so-called HistoCams enabling the visitor to see the yard and buildings at different points of time by looking though the ocular. This way you can see the castle's different appearances in the years 1027, 1160, 1250 and 1450.

 

The three-dimensional realization was mostly done by Sven Dännart of "Medievalworlds". My task was to create models and textures primarily for the interiors but also exteriors.
